I have just returned from the holiday of a lifetime in Rarotonga. Fortunate enough to be at a wedding, with 50 of my great friends, I also had the pleasure of staying at Te Akapuao Holiday Home and Studio Villas. From the moment we arrived, Mary and Charlie treated us like we were their own family. Nothing was a drama,... More

We were a group of 14 friends, who needed a place to stay in Rarotonga for a friends wedding in Muri Beach - and am so glad we found Te Akapuao! Charlie & Mary were fantastic hosts, and treated us like family from the very moment of our arrival. We hired the whole property, and were left to our own... More

So nice to have our own pool and an amazing entertaining deck for us all to gather and sip cocktails on. Charlie and Mary were... More

I celebrated my 40th birthday in Raro and it was awesome to be able to hire the entire property for a really reasonable price, we had our own pool too! It was a fantastic space to have a party where I could invite other friends to. Mary and Charlie are fabulous hosts and make you feel like you're at home.... More

A beautiful location. Tranquil and relaxing with the beach a short distance away. Everything you needed was provided. Thankyou for a wonderful stay Mary and Charlie and the fresh fruit that graced our table was amazing. Thanks again.

Il start with the positives...amazing setting, nice hosts and good location. I stayed in the main house and it was clean and comfortable. Negatives - had cold showers for most of our stay and unfortunately this was not fixed during our 9 day stay; the roosters will drive you absolutely insane! Woke us up at about 3am every single day!... More

This was such an amazing holiday, Mary and Charlie our hosts made us feel so welcome and had so many neat ideas of things we could explore and do while we were on the island.

Our extended family (11 of us) stayed at Te Akapuao for 11 days in total, as we were in Rarotonga for our son's wedding. We had some people coming and going at different times, but nothing was too much trouble for Mary and Charlie. Te Akapuao is a fabulous facility and all our family thoroughly enjoyed their stay.
